Level 1 - Primary
Slow and steady is what it's all about at this level ...we start students off at a nice pace and begin the foundation for biking safety and developing a strong sense of confidence. Getting comfortable with your bike is as important as the rest and we will teach you how to set them up so they work best for you! Rules - Rules - Rules...we love them! You will learn the basics of protective gear such as helmets and pads, and bowl / park etiquette. Did we mention safety?...well get used to that word, because we are all about safety at this stage. We don't ride until everyone is outfitted fully and comfortable in their protective gear.
Level 2 - Beginner
This is where you put your basics to work for you and put it all together...we will teach you how to ride in and out of the bowl safely, teach you tips and tricks on how to get out of a bad situation in the air...it's all about planning ahead and following through! Landing can be more important than the getting up there, and we will build the blocks for understanding this principle. You're going to bail and you may as well know some tricks and techniques to keep safe. Where you fall and recover in crashing situations are reinforced with bailing techniques. You will also get more comfortable in the bowl and learn to 'read the bowl'...how to drop in and pump the bowl and air out. Discipline building is strengthened here and we start students on 'follow the leader' work (for group sessions only).
Level 3 - Intermediate
By now you're an accomplished rider and it's time to get busy with it!....here is where we show you how to jump - jump - and jump more! You will learn the basics for spins and tricks that have been perfected by our expert James Hummell himself...that man knows his stuff. Dropping into the bowl, finding that perfect line, grabbing all the air you can and sticking the landing are worked on in this level. Practice bowl fly out and posture while doing so...you gotta look good doing it right? We help with individual styles at this point because we all have our own and that is very, very important.
Level 4 - Expert
Like the title says...you're an expert now!...but don't let that ever get in the way of learning because when you think you know it all, well, know it all's are simply not cool. We are here at this level to help develop your own style and we will show you dirt tracks and big jumps that will help do this and well!. Bigger parks and deeper bowls are the challenge and we will get you up to the challenge, with confidence, safety and pride. Did we mention fun?...well there will be fun as you explore this higher level and the skills you've earned to take on even bigger tricks.
Level 5 - Fine Tuning
You're a rock star by now and want to learn the latest tricks and skills...This level is for riders in the expert category who wish to brush up on their tricks and riding and learn the latest from the man James himself! Get advice on your technique you have crafted and get the finer points and tune up the complete package. You've earned this and now it's time to polish it and tighten it up to impress even yourself because after all, we do this for 'us' first right? Skate Park Life!
